Awesome (and unidentified) Masters of the Universe art

I had promised to publish the Food of New York article today, but it's not completed, and I'm a struggling with a fever today. So instead of writing a lot, I'll share some art I found on a hard drive, with the intention of possibly identifying the artist.

Obviously, they're contemporary pieces, and the file names say "alanleemotu". Which I guess is supposed to be the famous fantasy artist. But it doesn't really look like Alan Lee's style, and the signature says "Deng 2011". Superficial google searches left me no wiser, but I'd like to see more of this artist, as these two pieces are awesome. Leave a comment below if you recognize the artist.

Edit: TimmGleason commented below that this was in fact the work of two artists, commissioned by Mattel, apparently. Link to the original and the artists deviantart accounts are here:

Additionally: By now, we have all these figures in the Masters of the Universe Classics toy line. For many, the line is complete. I'm personally waiting for a few figures I had as a kid, like the upcoming Snake Face, Clamp Champ and New Adventures He-Man.

Ask and ye shall receive.

Looks like official artwork commissioned by Mattel.

Two guys, inker and a colorist.
